Full marks to England for a demolition job on Pakistan, inside 3 days, Caddick the chief wrecker with good support from Gough and Cork Pakistan batting was totally inadequate under the conditions at Lord's, they lost the vast majority of wickets behind the stumps, 15 out of 20 This clearly shows lack of technique to play the swinging and seaming ball The decision not to play a spinner may not have mattered with the fragile batting, but would have been useful Englands catching was spectacular and equally matched the bowling The next test will be at Old Trafford on 31 May and please do join us at 10:00GMT This Live Commentary was brought to you by ECB.co.uk and CricInfo, any comments please to comms@cricinfo.com So it is Godd Night all!
